How determined was the HRV softball team to play a game earlier this week? Determined enough to play through a combination of snow, sleet, rain and hail Wednesday. Megan Winans tries to keep warm at first base during the worst the weather could dish out. HRV and Milwaukie finished the game, going all seven innings with HRV winning 7-0.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
